Wes Michaels was a DAD and a MAN. One can only hope to act so selflessly and with such love at such a terrifying time.

After living in the midwest all of my life, I have seen my share of tornados. I am always amazed and comforted at how communities bond together after the the destruction of such a tradgedy. My thoughts to all who were affected by the storm.

"Gov. Tim Pawlenty is heading to the hardest-hit areas today to blame the tornado on the liberals and promote his self-aggrandizing delusions."

we don't get tornadoes near Ely. We did have a tornado warning about 8 years ago, after which the city had to put an add in the paper to remind people to go in thier basements, not outside to look for the tornado.

the side of the house is completely ripped off including the backs of cabinets. Yet the dishes in the cabinets are still stacked as though nothing had happened. Looks like a wicker basket under the sink area it too is sitting there as though nothing had happened. Tornadoes really do some strange things.

I'm as partisan as the next guy, but Libertarian. As such, the Obama/Pawlenty comments are below the pale in regards to this story. Both sides are out of line and should be ashamed.
